My wife and I took fourteen school pupils up to Derby and stayed in the Holiday Inn Express on the Saturday evening.
Great location and staff, super breakfast with everything included in the price, result, would recommend this to anyone and will be using HIE again sooner than later. Thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SwissTravel Nice, efficient hotel close to center of town
Just a few observations:
First room had a shower that didn't drain, front desk moved us quickly.
I didn't have my priority card with me at check in, and the clerk looked up my number for me.
Breakfast food choice is ok (except for the eggs that have a strange color), but the layout of the breakfast self serve area caused massive backups when busy.
Not many TV channels.
Can walk across the platforms of the train station without a ticket if you show your room key and explain you just want to cross into town (not many dining options within walking distance of hotel). and no shops.
Overall, good value for money will stay again. I'd just like an actual bar of soap and real shampoo. i'll bring my own next time.

All the staff here were very helpful and friendly. The family room was more than adequate for four of us for a nights stay. I was also impressed with the variety on offer at breakfast - will definitely stay here again.

Had a good stay here again, the room and bed is spacious and comfy, the breakfast is nice and filling, the only slight problem was that there was very noisy couple of families on our floor however other than that everything was fine

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mel846 Great hotel for the price
This hotel is excellent. We first stayed here in 2009 and so, when we were visiting the area again this year, we didn't think twice about staying again.
We are a family of four, including one teenager, so the rooms aren't huge for four people. However, they are very clean, well equipped and excellent value for money. There were four bath towels and four hand towels - many hotels don't study your booking and just provide the basic two, so it was good not to have to ask for more from reception after a long day. The air con works brilliantly and is easy to use. The bathroom has shampoo/shower gel and soap - again, these things are not often provided.
Breakfast was self-service between 7 and 11, which made it very convenient and easy. Good choices, includiing a hot option of scrambled egg and sausages, although the croissants were pretty stale.
Overall, for the money this hotel is highly recommended.

Comfortable, 'homey' room with all the necessary facilities. The staff were friendly and happy to help. Planning on visiting again next year and will definitely book again. It was hard to find on the satnav though!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ssk365 Great overnight stay!
Wanted a decent bed for a quick overnight stay in Derby and really can't fault it. Requested a quiet room which we certainly got despite the hotel being busy. Room was clean and the beds very comfortable. Plenty of parking and free of charge. Didn't expect much of breakfast, but again was very pleasantly surprised. Staff welcoming and helpful. Would definitely recommend it and without hesitation would stay again.

the thing I noticed most about HI Express Pride Park Derby was the happy and cheerful staff always smiling and always there to do and help. How refreshing this is from my many other experiences of Hotels all over the UK. They are actually enjoying their work and spreading that happiness to the guests

Stayed here on 28th Sept 2013, staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms were well kept, and the included breakfast was pretty good. I would highly recommend using this hotel if your thinking of visiting Derby.

We turned up early on the off chance that we could get in and not spoil our leisure plans. Reception staff booked us in and were very helpful when sorting out our son's bicycle. Nothing was too much trouble.
Location of hotel is excellent. Will definitely go again.

Can't fault this hotel in any way. The staff were very professional, friendly & extremely helpful. Rooms were spacious, beautifully decorated & spotlessly clean. The beds were really comfortable. Breakfast was free & there was plenty of choice, cereals, croissants, plenty of hot food, fresh fruit, yoghurts etc, an abundance of choice of top quality food & drinks. We got free Wifi too! Quiet location yet handy for the town. Shame we only booked for 1 night!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JCJF Great value
Had a great stay last weekend. Asked for two adjoining rooms (one double and one twin) as have two children aged 11 and 8. was really pleased to see that is exactly what we got! with a connecting door!! They were both clean and comfortable..and no external noise from outside or other guests. Televisions and tea making facilities were more than adequate. The bathroom area is well thought out too. Staff were very responsive and polite and there was plenty of breakfast choice to eat in a clean and tidy area.
Overall, a pleasant and convenient place to stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HarryKarry Good service-shame about noise and cigarette smell
Good room and service, although noisy during night and cigarette smoke smell from adjoining room wasn't particularly pleasant. Breakfast good, plenty to choose from, sausages not very good quality though, but for the price I guess you can't have everything!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LancsExile Excellent Budget Hotel
The proximity to the railway station makes this hotel a much cheaper option for us when visiting friends in Nottingham.
Very pleasant staff, efficient check in. Free wifi easily accessed. Room and public areas were all very clean and well maintained. Room size was fine for 2, but would be rather cramped if you had 2 children on the sofa bed. We had no noise disruption at all.
We were pleased to learn that HIE guests get 20% off at Chiquitos restaurant across the road (10% off at a nearby Indian restaurant too).
Despite being quite busy at breakfast time all food and drink options were available and staff were efficient at clearing and cleaning tables. My only gripe is HIE's no bacon policy!
An excellent budget hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Paul104 Room and service
On arrival my wife and I found the staff very inviting and informative. Reception staff were very welcoming and knowledgeable to all our questions. Our room was very nice, bed was very comfortable and slept very well indeed. Bathroom very clean and spacious. Only downside was that the buffet breakfast was very basic and not a great variety, apart from that we would defiantly recommend staying at the hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by reep20 Weekend in Derby.
Typical good Holiday Inn express with plenty of car parking space which is great. Good location' only 10 mins walk from Derby centre and close to railway station. Good breakfast selection and hotel staff very helpful. Room was on the small side compared to other Express's I have used, but still clean and comfortable.
Would use again if in Derby.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Amazing
Couldn't believe how good my stay here was. Got free wi-fi. A nice comfortable room, loads of breakfast choices, for two of us all for £35 it was amazing. The staff were lovely and helpful. Would definitely use Holiday Inn again over anything else!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jason1970 Excellent room in a great location
We stayed in the Holiday Inn Pride Park during our race weekend at near by Donington Park. This hotel is in an excellent location for this and Alton Towers which are both around 25 minutes drive. I had phoned a couple of days earlier requesting additional pillows as I had to sleep propped up due to an accident. When we arrived they were there as requested. We had an excellent nights sleep and enjoyed our weekend. Thanks again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Napper66 Cooked Breakfast
I've worked in Derby many years and stayed here at this hotel 50 times over the years but not stayed at this express for around 12 months hotel quality and staff remained a constant with comfortable
Rooms and easy check in , but the quality of the breakfast has deteriorated badly , quality of the cooked breakfast
Is very poor and to be honest you wouldn't have
Given it to your dog , no bacon at all and cheap
Other items .. Please improve !!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Brilliant air-con and free wi-fi
From the moment we arrived, we were greeted at reception, very friendly and informative, bright and airy hotel, clean and comfortable. Room provides everything you want including free Wi-Fi and excellent air-con so the whole experience was excellent. Only 10-15 min walk to city centre and an added bonus of a Harvester restaurant outside the hotel. I would definitely stay here again and will recommend Holiday Inns from now on.
